The Appeal Letter must be sent to the person identified in the process you have been involved in. If in doubt, check with your HR lead.

The safest way to serve the Letter is to deliver it in person or failing this, to send it by courier, post or email.

  • In person: hand the Letter to your contact personally.

  • Post: if you are posting the Letter, it is recommended that you use recorded delivery and that you keep a copy of the proof of posting and delivery.

  • Email: request a ‘read receipt’ as proof of delivery.

Keep a copy of your Appeal Letter.

If you post or hand deliver the Letter, keep a copy of the signed Letter that was sent along with anything else you included.

If you email the Letter then, a copy of the email that was sent and any attachments together with any ‘read receipts’.

A copy of the Appeal Letter will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
